Photo of northern lights over starlit landscape

Northern lights in Sarek, northern Sweden

  • Taken: July 12, 2024
  • Location: Sarek national park, Lapland, northern Sweden

We were super lucky to see northern lights basically every night during our hike in Sarek. Since there is no light pollution around the colors were really vivid and strong. I wasn’t sure that it was even possible, but the lights really lit up the landscape as well. Atleast the camera sensor was able to capture it while taking timelapse. Northern lights depend on the activity cycle of the sun these are the years to see them if you feel like it. 😉

Tip: Take your sleeping mattress and sleeping bag outside, lay back and enjoy the show. The usually come in bursts so situation might change very quickly.
